2:06 am
this kind of geeky guy who are making out. it's a close shot. people say i can't watch it, i cringe, i turn away. so -- >> so we're making you watch it yet again. >> we're seeing -- >> enjoy it, hoda. you think america wants to see more of this, then let's show a little more. >> here's the question. the question is this. why does it gross people out? >> let's do it in slow motion. really. slow motion. we can do that. can't we? >> but why? what is it about -- now, if they were two people who -- if it was bar and -- i'm asking. do people feel uncomfortable when they see a beautiful person and a not quite as beautiful person making out? >> beauty is in the eye of the beholder. i bet the mother of that boy thinks he's beautiful. >> don't try to make me feel bad. these are questions that everyone turned away. here's a will ferrell ad. i'm not saying will ferrell is not a hottie, but he is also making out with a woman who is looking out of a bus window, and then suddenly they go in for it. boom. >> now -- okay? now --
2:07 am

2:08 am
>> we're going to watch making out for our whole show. this for some reason instead of everybody going ooh, it's too close. they're saying oh, that's hot. they are right there on the ladder equally. i can't see the guy, but i think so from the back. >> it's about equal footing. okay. just wondering why everyone was so oohed out about the other one. >> they still seem to be. everybody keeps talking about how much this kid was paid to do the commercial. i asked our producers, find out how much the girl was paid. >> so bad. >> although, it turns out i felt a little bit for the kid because it seemed exploitive of him. >> he loved it. >> he is so happy. >> is he in heaven. >> he is getting calls. he is getting jobs. he has gone from -- >> please. >> he has gone from being like 63 movies he has been in as an extra. no speaking part. he will probably get in the next jonah hill movie or something. >> i bet you're right. >> he was here the other day. >> yeah.
2:09 am
>> do you know what's similar? we should always take our cue from the person that is at the center of the controversy. if that kid is not upset about it, we shouldn't be. when governor christie was on david letterman. >> there's a funny bit. governor christie goes on letterman, i don't know if you saw this, and he gets in there and he -- now, letterman has always been making fun of christie and his weight. he came on and decided to give it back down to him. take a listen. >> i make jokes about you. not just one or two. not just ongoing here and there intermittent, but -- >> i didn't know this was going to be this long. >> here's two of them that we put together. first one was celebrity birthday today, chris christie turned 50, and he blew out the candles on his cake and he wished for another cake.
2:10 am
[ applause ] this one i thought -- i don't know if this was one of your best ones, but i think it's topical given what went on yesterday. a billion dollars will be spent on potato chips for super bowl sunday, and that's just at governor christie's house. [ laughter ] >> now, he seems to be -- he is having a lot of fun with it. >> he is having fun with it, and didn't he also say -- he said, listen, i'm the healthiest fat man you've ever met in your life. >> he said his cholesterol was great, his blood sugar was great and everything. >> i happen to adore that man. >> he's really funny. >> i met him just once at a giants game. he fills the room. i don't mean just bulk. everybody loves him. he is teasing. he is funny. i didn't even see him snacking on anything. he just has a great personality. >> i wonder if he -- you know sometimes you tell the jokes that someone else doesn't. like you're out there in front. >> you get ahead of it. >> you want to get ahead of it.
2:11 am
i wonder if it at all hurts his feelings when he hears a lot of fat jokes. >> i can't imagine it's great to hear constantly. >> i think the best thing you can do is always be self-deprecating. about it. i think in the privacy of anybody's life, and we've seen this a lot through the joy fit club, people that are that overweight have serious health issues ultimately. they just do. almost every single one of them would love to take a magic pill and be thin. for whatever reason. it can be a cruel world, and a lot of bullying takes place because of it. >> i always cringe when i watch, like, a heavy set female comedian make fat jokes. i don't know why. i know that it's -- there's something about it that just makes me kind of cringe a little. i feel like the way he handled it on this show was great. i mean, i thought he really handled it. >> people in your life that have been teased and have had painful experiences, so you're sensitive to it. >> i think anyone who has ever been friends or known or been with someone that's overweight gets the feeling, or if you've

2:13 am
you can just do this and, oh, my gosh, it is so exciting and fulfilling when it -- >> look how clean. >> look at that. look at that. >> no, you don't need -- >> that's the difference. right there. >> you got it. how about a cute baby picture? we have one for you. this is shakira's baby picture. a lot of people -- >> god bless them. >> oh, come on. a lot of people sell their baby pictures, but not shakira. >> i love that about her. >> she decided to ask people to give charity donations of between $5 or whatever for unicef, and that's so sweet. >> she's one of their international ambassadors, and she said instead of baby gifts, instead of anything for me, i'm blessed beyond belief. i have everything i could ever need or wish for. >> i love that. >> in his name grant some money or gifts or something to unicef so that other less fortunate others can have their basic needs covered.

>> what's the other way other than bringing a prop? >> let's say there's a specific guy you want to meet. there's really subtle ways to get him to come over. like the eye contact thing or even bumping into them. >> but don't spill his drink, you said. >> try not to. i ended up dating someone who did that. that's where i learned that -- >> it didn't last, did it? >> we broke up, i'm, like, you shouldn't have spilled that drink on me. i remember. >> and you talk about how if you are a pretty girl, then dress pretty. if you are not so pretty girl, dress interesting. >> i think it's -- >> play to your strengths. >> it's so important to go to your strengths. i'm with guys as they're going out to bars or clubs or coffee shops, and they're deciding who to approach and who they're interested in. i see so often that guys would much rather approach the woman who is confident in her own skin who looks comfortable with herself and who maybe is telling a story about herself with how she's dressed than the 25th most attractive woman in the room that's competing on that ground.
2:42 am
>> it's hard but it's sad. >> yeah. >> i'm not looking at you when i say that. i didn't. i know you thought that, and i wasn't. i was saying -- i think you want to ask a question now. right, hoda? >> you have asked every question, and i'm done with this segment. it seems to be over. the single one didn't even ask a question. it's fine. i'm going to the handy man segment that's coming up next. >> they're five guys who i think might be right for you, hoda. we're going to meet the models who remodel right after this. good morning to you. i'm meteorologist chris warren with your weather channel forecast. today we're watching still some snowshowers with a clipper working across the northeast. we're going to have a chance for some snow throughout parts of the upper midwest. coldest air still closest to the canadian border, getting close to the freezing mark here in minneapolis. anytime you get above the freezing mark in minneapolis this time of year, it almost feels balmy.
2:43 am
temperatures will be above freezing in chicago. and we're going to see temperatures quite mild in the southeast. that changes on thursday, a system in texas right now moves across the gulf coast states, brings rain and cooler temperatures. so say goodbye to those readings around 70 degrees because things will cool off. the next low moving through on thursday bringing a chance for snow here, chicago you're kind of in the middle. going to have to wait and see which type of precipitation you get, whether it's rain, ice or snow. but by thursday the temperatures will be into the 20s in minneapolis, coming down here still cold throughout the northeast. boston is going to be 26. friday is going to be a big day to watch for. later today again on thursday, really pay attention to the weather channel for the changes that may be coming with the forecast. because the way things are look now, this potentially could be a big storm for boston and parts of new england and the northeast. friday into saturday.
